Most screenings are followed by lively debate and discussion between filmmakers, audiences and human rights experts. This year, in association with the Discovering Latin America Film Festival, we welcome three documentaries about memory, loss and justice in Latin America A PROMISE TO THE DEAD Ariel Dorfman will attend screenings of A Promise to the Dead, which documents his return to Chile with filmmaker Peter Raymont in late 2006. Dorfman was spared the fate of most of his colleagues when Chile’s military, led by Pinochet, attacked and killed democratically elected President Allende and his ministers at the presidential palace. Years later, Dorfman discovered that his name was struck off the list of people who Allende called to stand against the attackers, so that he could live to tell what happened that day.

In this deeply personal documentary Castillo retraces the path from resistance to exile, from the inspiring days of Allende to the long, sombre years under Pinochet, and remembers the men and women who rose up against his tyranny.

The result is a revealing portrayal of a system overwhelmed despite the efforts of the no-nonsense Judge Luciana Fiala.
